We were blown away by the view of the city and surrounding area. We could not get enough of how lovely this is. Additionally, our tour guide gave us a wonderful explanation of the Mexican revolution and Pipila's role in the history of the country. Worth a stop and make sure your camera is working!

I have to agree with others, the trip there is nothing interesting actually kind of scary but once your on top the view is incredible. Well worth it must see if in guanajuato. The statue is mainly history there is a story behind it. The guides there will be able to explain.

great place to take in the entirety of the city and the surrounding mountains. You can reallly appreciate how Guanajuato is in a canyon. Easy trip up or down by funicular or you can walk, if you don't mind a steep climb.

There was nothing special about the statue, but the view up there was incredible. We spent 3 hours just to drink michelada in the small cafe there and enjoyed the breath-taking view. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!

If you go up to see the monument, you are actually at a stunning place to look at the city of Guanajuato. There is a large semi-circular platform, from which you can see most points of town. Perfect for photos. If possible, go up there first, then you will be able to see everything you will see later at ground level. Since this is elevated, it is a better way to take it all in. The monument itself is striking, and this man is a hero to the people there.
